    I went to EB today to get my lovely new Castlevania HOD game and I went ahead and picked up Terminator Dawn of Fate (Xbox). I figured what the hell, I'll give it a whirl. Have'nt had a chance to play it as of yet since I'm at work but I'd like to hear peoples thoughts on it if you have already picked it up.

    I'll chime in later tonight with some impressions after I get some play time in with it. (Have to put down Castlevania first).

    Well, they released me early today from work and I got home at about 4:30. Played Terminator until about 10 minutes ago. Promptly returned it after. I don't know where to start with this one. Its not that its bad per se, its just plain out mediocre. The graphics are hoe-hum and really plain, The controls are a pain in the butt because of the really bad static camera angles that are used in the game. The weapons are dull, I found myself utterly bored about an hour into it. I usually give games a bit more time before I up and return them but this one just turned me off completely. Just really disappointing.[​IMG]
    Sucks too cause I was really in the mood for some Terminator action. Guess the DVD will have to do for now...

    that really is a shame, as a game that followed T2 IMO real closely would flat out rule if executed properly...

    Ugh.
    I was really looking forward to this one.
    Oh well...maybe when it gets really cheap.

    Another mediocre game for the Xbox? [​IMG]
    It seems like there have been a few letdowns in games for Xbox

    Personally I thought the screenshots for this looked bad from the very begining, and previews I saw weren't exactly estatic ... still, its too bad.

    IGN gave it a 5, and once again they look like idiots they didn't copy and paste the sound part correctly

    Never mind I found it under PS2 reviews. I don't see an XBOX review as of yet. And they gave it a 5.6 if that makes any difference.

    Thanks for the 1st impressions Romier and others - Saved me from buying this one. Sucks though, I think we would ALL love a new Terminator game but gameplay needs to be there - Not just the movie liscence. [​IMG]
